Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Ceramic Braces

 Clear Aligners

invisalignThe clear aligners are a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. We offer two clear aligner systems, Invisalign and 3M Clarity Aligners.
